Santa Has Some Favorites

Hello, friends! As my week off continues, I want to share a card for two current challenges:

(1) The CAS Christmas November Challenge calls for a clean and simple card featuring Santa.

(2)  The current challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More! Challenge #317 is to "Make Your Mark" and, in this case, I made my mark with distress inks and lots of Copic markers!

For my card, I die cut a white panel and stamped the Whipper Snapper Designs Santa image and My Favorite Things sentiment. Next,  I colored Santa with Copic markers and masked the image in order to add blue distress ink to the sky.  The sequins were the final touch.

Stamps: Whipper Snapper (Magical Santa); MFT (Jingle All the Way)
Inks: Memento (Tuxedo Black), Distress Oxide (Tumbled Glass), Copic markers
Other: Wonky Stitched Rectangles die, sequins 

While I was at it, I made another version of this card. This time I used all the same materials but I changed the placement and color of the sequins.

I have always loved this Santa image by Whipper Snapper Designs. If you get the chance, you should check out the whole collection of Christmas images at their shop HERE.  They are all so cute!

As always, thank you for stopping by!
